  1. Gday everyone, first build post from me in a LOOOOOONG time. Let's see if I can finish this one! Roden's T-28 came up cheap on internet auction site, and was promptly added to the stash. A current mood mojo of 1/48 trainers saw the trojan making it's way promptly to the bench. The kit is.... rough. Very nice detailing, albeit buried under plenty of flash. HEAVY scribed panel lines, ordinary fit and the decals. Ugh the decals. More on them later. I'm using photo bucket for pic transfer and I'm not sure how the quality of the pics will be on these pages. Comments on that and the model are welcomed. Jumping straight in, the cockpit was fine. Masking tape seatbelts and plastic buckles were hastily thrown together, otherwise all OOTB.Trial fit of the windscreen and nose bowl. Filler applied to wing joints. Canopies on, and seams smoothed. Fit here wasn't terrible. Just some simple sanding of mating surfaces to get everything lined up and it looked pretty good. Canopies closed on this build, i want to keep this one simple. First proper fun, the flight controls. Ailerons and flaps are separate parts, allowing them to be posed as the builder likes. The instructions advise on different parts needed to assemble the flaps in the up position but fail to mention that a brief lesson in 5th dimensional physics will be needed to get the parts to actually fit correctly. Break out the coarse carborundum paper! And of course the parts didnt match up in plan form either. Inboard edge of ailerons shimmed to fit. More soon, thanks for reading! Denzil
  2. Hobbytime 1/48 F-4E 2020 Terminator kit... clean built for kit box side photos… enjoy 🙂
  3. This is my Dragonfly as used in Vietnam in the '60's. It's a special kit for me because I graduated in the Air Force Academy in his older and less powerful brother, the T-37C. Nice little bird though. I wish they had a kit for it, for conversion from this one should be very demanding. I've used PE parts and the painting was free hand, since masking was very tricky for this scheme. Hope you enjoy! Cheers! George ps: the chart over the panel is a 1:250.000 of South Vietnam, of course.....
  4. Hi all! Well, it's that time again... Another finished project! This time it is the 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MKM Flanker-H conversion from the base Su-30MKK kit using the Naza Model Art MKM conversion. The build WIP thread can be viewed here: The Su-30MKM is the Malaysia specific variant of the Su-30, based off of the Indian Su-30MKI. It has canards and thrust vectoring exhaust in common with that aircraft, however there are many things that make the MKM unique among Flankers. It utilizes western avionics from France and South Africa, and many feature not seen on other Flankers. The twin-seat canard Flankers are among my favorite aircraft, however there is no kit in 1/48 of these variants (Su-30SM/MKI/MKM/MKA). Thankfully, the somewhat recently released Hobby Boss Su-30MKK gets you close, and the Naza Model Art conversion kit gets you ALMOST there. I also needed to do some scratchbuilding of the IFF "bird slicers" and a few other little things. I also need thrust vectoring nozzles, so for those I used the AMUR Reaver TV nozzles, which are really nice. I also used Fishbone Decals for the decals. The Hobby Boss kit is really quite nice. Great detail, and the fit is nearly perfect. Easy to build, it is really a simple kit. There are some inaccuracies in this kit, but they do not bother too much. The Naza resin is very nice, and fit the kit quite well once the necessary plastic is removed. This was my first conversion I have attempted, and I must say I was quite apprehensive about attempting it. But I decided to just dive in and do it, and came away relieved. I actually enjoyed it, and am glad the conversion parts fit well. I am no longer afraid of doing another in the future. I also used a Master Model Pitot, L'Arsenal Damocles Pod, and NeoMega Ejection Seats. There are a few small inaccuracies with this build, mostly with the cockpit IPs. But overall it is pretty close. Kit: 1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MKK no. 81714 Decals: Fishbone Su-30MKM Royal Malaysian Air Force Aftermarket: Naza Model Art Su-30MKM Exterior Conversion Set, A.M.U.R. Reaver Thrust Vectoring Nozzles, L.Aresnal Damocles Pod w/Nahar Pylon, NeoMega K-36DM Seats, Master Model Pitot Tube Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (main aircraft primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Mr Paint MRP-090 Lemon-Gray Russian aviation primer and MRP-181 Light Gray, Gunze Aqueous H335 Medium Seagray, and H331 Dark Seagray , Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Blue, and Clear Yellow, Gunze Mr Color GX2 Gloss Black (gloss black primer for metalwork) and Alclad II Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. On to the pic... Hope you like!

  8. Accurate Miniatures /48 scale kit, built OOB aside form the Infini antennae wire. Fiddly at points but otherwise an enjoyable build.
  9. Hi there, I know, as if we're missing more '109s around here. But, for me, this one is special, my first motling attempt. I tried to be as close as possible to the manual and I'm happy with it. Hope you'll enjoy! This one was Oberleutnant Anton Hafner machine, in which he scored 204 kills and was, in turn, killed, when collided with the ground, while trying to evade his opponents. Cheers!

  11. Good day folks, My second post after a long long time in lurk mode. Kit is a Tamiya 1/48 f-16cj. Constructing the basic block 50 of one of the birds in Misawa. Has been done by people before me by the hundreds, but here is another. This first post of the WIP is some pics I documented up until now. The aircraft is waiting for further progress (ie. When the wifey takes a few days to do lady things with her friends). Off topic: she doesnt know I have an airbrush and compressor. Its hidden inside the bed on the side without the drawers. If shes here, no big paintwork. Back on track, Goodies include: Eduard sets for the interior, exterior, and bays. Eduard missiles aim 9x,120c, 88 (still trialing them, some need a treatment of heat to dewarp the bodies) Eduard sniper pod KA models ge exhaust. I got the set for the f-14 but it butt fits ok to my inexperienced eye. Detail level is godlike. Comes with masks for the dark burnt areas on the outside. I cant recommend this enough. MM pitots and static wicks Other items are various gauges of wire, wave corp clear lens thing, for the hud. Ill update as this project progresses. Thanks! I hope the image picture stuff works. The insert other media came up as red for flickr so I posted just the link. Edit: got it to work from Imgur. Gotta do it one by one for now. Im still new to this. Removed original flickr link. to get best possible fit with rest of the build I figured best to do the intake and bay area myself, so finger grease and patience it is. After a layer of grey primer Mostly painted. And test fitted. After this I glued up the 4 part intake trunk, lots of CA and sanding and pouring, repeat, I put the bay in the belly, the other intake bits and nosewheel bay in, and closed it up. Unfortunately got lazy and didn't document that bit. Ill post finished intake mouth pics when I get the masking out. That's it all closed up. Legs were added in as well as the hydraulic plumbing. Sorry terrible angle. Cockpit area wip. Mostly eduard bits and scratchbuilding where appropriate. Glareshield and hud. Again Eduard bits. Lens is made from a wave brand clear lens thing. I tinted it with tamiya clear yellow/orange. HUD glass in place. The eduard ones were too thin (i think thats a first) so I used projector film. KA models fabulous cans. I first sprayed the whole thing with black primer. Followed by a glossy rattlecan spray. Outsides were masked. Insides sprayed white. Afterwards the masking was reverved and an Alclad mix of magnesium and pale burnt metal was sprayed. This was butt fitted to the tamiya part with copious CA. Masking, grey primer, black preshading, and hataka paints followed. This is where the model is now. Konbini
  12. I would like to promote my new 1/48 3D LM so I have decided to build it. Since I already have the 1/32 CSM flying with Mike above the 1/32 LM on the Moon for the very first step of Neil, I have decided to build both spacecraft attached as in lunar orbit. This is a model I built about 50 years ago, originally all white but modified through the years. The new model will incorporate my 3D printed LM and the CSM from Realspace along with a complete new stand for the Apollo celebration I just started the model with the descent stage, this will depict Apollo 12 so I can have the RTG attached to quadrant 2. It will have the same amount of detail as the 1/24 or the 1/32 I already built. For indication on the build you can refer to my web site with pictures, explanations and links to the parts on Shapeways or Thingiverse for those having a 3D printer : http://spacemodels.nuxit.net/1-48-LM/index.html Happy modelling Vincent
  13. Hi comrades! Here result of my build. I really enjoy this kit and recommend it! Full build is in "in progress" section Thanks for looking
  14. Anyone familiar with this kit? Is it any good at all? Is the shape at least relatively accurate? I know it is an old kit and there are better kits but tis "may NOT" mean that it is still not a good kit. I have put together a lot of old kits that were still good models.

  16. Hi all, I'm currently working on my KH 1:48 AH-1Z, and am in the process of adding some detail to it - I've never liked having open photoetched screens with nothing behind them, and on the Cobra, there are a couple that are particularly obvious, because you can see daylight through them. As such, I want to avoid having an empty hole on my model, so I'm looking for photos of what's behind these particular grates: I don't necessarily need extreme detail, but I'd like to at least get an idea of what's behind them, particularly the general location of the structure inside (e.g. is it a small "boxed-in" compartment, or part of a larger open bay, and if so, what's the general arrangement of the "floor/walls" etc.). I've scoured the web and the usual walk-around sites, and found a few photos, but mainly just ones where you can see that there's *something* behind the screen, but not what it actually is... Again, not necessarily looking for extreme technical details, etc (though I wouldn't mind that as well), but more just looking for a general idea of how to "fill" the space so they're not just empty black holes...
  17. Hi- Just got an '80s NOS Monogram 1/48 F-104C via eBay, which dropped with the colorful 479th scheme and the SEA camo 'Smoke II" decal sheet. Unfortunately the OEM sheet is way out of register, with much of the print off the carrier and on the backing sheet. So I've been looking for Kursad's benchmark F-104C in Vietnam sheet and it is non-existent at pretty much all online and bricks-mortar shops... Sprue Bros, Hannants and others overseas... forget it. Does anyone have the partial sheet they'd be willing to part with, after finishing your chosen subject? Name your price.] Thanks-

If you are a good modeler which I am not, you could possibly make the piece that's missing to match the other piece that is present out of card or cast it off the piece from the complete Boston kit or find someone who can get you a trashed kit or make a diorama with a tarp over it. LOL 27.00 plus shipping gets both kits. I accept PayPal or for those who still do things the way we used to, I will take a personal check or money order. Email me direct please do not use p.m. function licin@comcast (dot) net Cheers Max

  23. Hey everyone! Well, I haven't done an in-progress thread in awhile, but since this project is my first real conversion (and one of my favorite aircraft), I thought I would do one for this... Besides, I may need some support and may have some questions along the way. 🙂 So the base kit for this is the Hobby Boss Su-30MKK, and I will be using the Naza Model Art Su-30MKM conversion set. I also have Fishbone decals for this aircraft. I will also be using a L'Arsenal Aero Damocles pod, AMUR Reaver Thrust Vectoring Exhausts, Master Model Pitot, and Neomega seats. So pull up a seat and enjoy the show!
  24. Hi! I built the CAG bird with typical Linebacker load and well worn condition. Here my Hasegawa Phantom with Rhino seamless intakes, Eduard's brass, wheels, exhausts, Furball decals and some scratch build mainly in chassis area. All paints are from Gunze MrColor "C" series. Weapons from Hasegawa's weapon set. Thanks for looking!
  25. I just finished the Academy F-5e kit for the D-day group build and thought I would post pictures here too. Thanks for looking Geoff M
